Overview

The Viognier from Domaine de la Janasse comes from a 2.5 hectare sandy and pebbly terroir just outside the boundaries of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the village of Courthézon. The fruit is harvested by hand, gently pressed whole-cluster, and fermented in an oak vat. It is aged in foudres and French oak barrels, of which 25% are new each vintage.
